    Who Is Blind?
    The one who is unable to perceive another world.
    Who is dumb?
    The one who cannot speak a kind and loving word at the right moment.
    Who is poor?
    The one who is plagued by too many desires.
    Who is rich?
    The one whose heart is contented.

    "I want five billion dollars to fund my wall."

    "Well, my party considers your wall to be immoral, ineffective and too costly.
    We offer 1.8 billion as a compromise."

    "Now let's all agree, never to be creative again."

    "In that case, I'll settle for three."

    I dunno that it was ever said, but it should'a been.

    Edit: My comment is based off an old urban myth concerning a Hollywood 'A' lister back in the 30's or 40's. It's been attributed to Errol Flynn, Clark Gable, and a number of others.

    The story goes that the individual met a pretty young woman at a social gathering, and struck up a conversation.

    He: "Would you sleep with me for a million dollars?"

    She: "Oh, most certainly!"

    He: "Then how about ten?"

    She, indignant: "Of course not! What sort of girl do you thing I am?!?"

    He, laughing: "My dear, we've already established what sort of girl you are; now we're just negotiating price."

    Sounds like Washington D.C. to me...

    The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
    But I have promises to keep,
    And miles to go before I sleep.

    The Democrats and President Obama gave Iran 150 billion dollars and got nothing, but they can’t give 5 billion dollars for NATIONAL SECURITY and a wall? DJT
